Looks like your calipers could use a paint touch up and clear coat.... :wave:

Of course, I still have lots to reassemble and clean up (including black trim) Anyways, I'm pretty excited about how it's turning out. :D

Thank you! It's the exact paint code, LY6V. It does look pretty deep and it was explained to me that was due to the extra thick clear coat. I will be having a cut and buff done before clear-bra goes on. :D

Stunning - love the colour. Still getting grief from 'er indoors after selling a
very low mileage Coupe GT in oceanic blue....

Wouldn't be so bad but she was right (again)!

So, small update.

Nothing major to report, I did take some time and dye the bumper trims so satisfy critics... I'm looking at you Chris.. ;) The suggestion was to use black leather dye to impregnate the plastic with black again and I have to say it's turned out rather fantastic in my opinion! :D

Image

I also ordered this from make to so that I can properly protect my timing assembly without have a hacked up cover to fit my over my TOMIS gear.

Image

Sorry, I've been using a potato for a camera lately. :shame:

That is all for now.

YESSS! The bumpers turned out great. I'll have to do that to mine once they get repainted. Looks sharp!

Looks really great Ben. Do you have a timeline/goal in mind for "completion" or just whenever it gets done?

I wish I knew about that when I had my 4k. Would have been awesome to have fantastic black trim with the red patina paint.

Looks great ben! Are you going to put the door trim back on? I like them better with the trim, plus it protects from door dings.

Last night I installed the 2b front lip and I have to say I think it looks even better than I thought it would...

Now if I only had something better than a potato for a camera... :hammer:
